One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that should not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do that. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you will also avoid the chance of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
